Testimonies from past attendants:
"This class taught me more than I expected about the anatomy of ink jet printing — it has helped me better
understand printing issues we have had in the past along with the huge impact that the condition of the
press as well as environment has on profile building. This was an eye-opening experience The Pyramid method
of profiling has helped direct us to stay on tract when building a profile the proper
way." -- Terri Bender, Express Image
"Prior to the SGIA Color Management Boot Camp we had very limited knowledge and understanding of color
management and the importance of verification. Thanks to the folks over at SGIA and Dan Reid we have been
able to incorporate the fundamentals of color management to our workflow and create a new process for color
verification which has helped reduce our overall damage rate for color related issues. The class was
phenomenal and the instructor was excellent. It was very obvious that he has fun with color management and
he instilled the excitement of it in everybody. 10/10 would definitely recommend to anybody seeking to
better understand color."-- Mike Hinshaw, Game Time Wraps
